Abstract

"A linear mathematical model of a diesel engine, hydrostatic transmission, and electric dynamometer system was developed. This model was used as an aid in designing a single input controller which regulates engine speed to optimize efficiency while maintaining constant transmission output speed under changing load conditions. Compensation was necessary to stabilize the system because of positive feedback in the engine control system. The compensated system's response was compared to that which was predicted analytically. The analytical model was then extended to design the control system parameters to operate the engine and transmission in a representative vehicle"--Abstract, page ii.
